In City Retreat

Last weekend my guild had an in-city retreat. One of our members found a wonderful room with lots of great natural light, lots of room, huge tables, and comfy chairs. It was amazing.

We did get a little overwhelmed with our projects. (Not sure if you can see it in the picture below, but under the white pile, you can see shoes.) Good news is, we only lost one! :)

Several months ago (like last year), we did a charm pack night. We had a show & tell of all sorts of quilts made from charm packs. That night inspired a second night. We each picked a charm pack and created these split 9-patch quilts from them. (If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll create a tutorial for them). I love seeing the exact same pattern turn out so differently just because of the fabric choices.

Speaking of things turning out differently, just because of fabric choices... Do you remember these quilts? One and Two. Well, here are two more of our guild BOMs.

Great post but I was hoping for your Winding Ways top. :0) Whose sampler quilt is the 2nd one? I really like them both.
